THE SIGNIFICANCE OF THE ACADEMIC MACE 
Observing the centuries-old convocation procedures, each Marshal in the 
Savannah State College Academic Procession carries an official mace which is in- 
dicative of the power, dignity, and magisterium vested in the College. The mace is a 
club-shaped staff which originated in the Middle Ages as a weapon. Eventually, it 
gained a ceremonial character and is presently employed most often by legislative 
forums and academic enterprises. 

The official mace of Savannah State College was designed and made from 
mahogany wood by Dr. Ernest S. Brown, Assistant Professor of Industrial Educa- 
tion. Dr. Lester B. Johnson, Head of the Department of Engineering Technology, 
designed and built the Mace Stand. 

The College motto is "Lux Et Veritas" ("Light and Truth").

SAVANNAH STATE COLLEGE HYMN 



Let us give thanks and praise to Thee, 
To our Alma Mater, S.S.C. 
Thine honor, pride, and eminence, 
We raise in prayerful reverence. 

Guide us still from day to day, 
Be Thou mindful lest we lose our way; 
Help us know that life, short or long, 
Means unceasing work for weak and strong. 

REFRAIN 

Where Savannah meets the sea, 

Where grassy plains and palms abound, 

where the flow 'rs are gems of loveliness, 

There S.S.C. is found. 

We adore each beauteous scene and hall, 

Our all we pledge to Thee! 

In our hearts we'll build a shrine for Thee. 

We hail Thee, S.S.C. 



— J. Randolph Fisher 
Hillary Hatchett

ACADEMIC COSTUMES 

Modern academic dress has evolved from a type of apparel prescribed by English Medieval 
Universities to distinguish their schools from the lay person in dress at a time when everybody 
wore robes or gowns. When American colleges and universities desired to adopt some suitable 
system of academic apparel a half century ago it seemed best to agree on some definite system 
which all might follow. Accordingly, this attire has consisted of the cap, the gown, and the hood, 
the latter two now differing according to the degree the wearer has received. 

The modern cap, in academic dress has the same design for all degrees; black and square- 
shaped with a tassel hanging from the center. However, the color of the tassel usually differen- 
tiates the field of study for which the degree was granted, the gold tassel being worn by doctors or 
by presidents of colleges and universities; but it may be added that the black tassel is correct for 
all degrees. 

The gown, unlike the cap, differs appreciably in design according to the degree conferred on 
the wearer. The gown for the bachelor's degree has pointed sleeves. It is designed to be worn clos- 
ed. The gown for the master's degree, worn open or closed has an oblong sleeve, open at the 
wrist, like the others. The sleeve base hangs down in the traditional manner. The rear part of its 
oblong shape is square cut and the front part has an arc cut away. The doctor's gown, worn open 
or closed, has long sleeves faced with velvet; three bars of velvet are midway the sleeves. The 
trimmings of the doctor's gown may be black or the color associated with the field of study. 

The hood, while not an article of dress, is, however, the most distinctive feature of the 
academic attire. It is a black, crow-shaped badge or adornment with an oval opening and worn 
down the back. It enables one to quickly determine not only the degree held by the wearer but 
also the college or university from which he is graduated. The colors lining the hood and the size 
and shape of the hood make this distinction. The bachelor's and master's hoods are three feet 
and three and a half feet in length, respectively; the doctor's hood is four feet in length and is 
made with a wide panel. Hoods may be worn for only those degrees actually held by the wearers. 

Members of the governing body of a college or university, and they only, whatever their 
degrees may be, are entitled to wear doctor's gowns (with black velvet), but their hoods may be 
only those of degrees actually held by the wearers or those especially prescribed for them by the 
institution. 

In some colleges and universities, it is customary for the president, chancellor, or chief of- 
ficer to wear a costume similar to that worn by the head of a foreign university. 

The chief marshal may wear a specially designed costume approved by the institution. 

For all academic purposes, including trimmings of doctor's gowns, edging of hoods, and 
tassels of caps, the color associated with different subjects as prescribed by the revised American 
Intercollegiate Code is as follows: 

Agriculture Maise 

Arts, Letters, Humanities White 

Business Drab 

Economics Copper 

Education Light Blue 

Law Purple 

Library Science Lemon 

Music Pink 

Oratory — (Speech) Silver Gray 

Philosophy Dark Blue 

Physical Education Sage Green 

Science Golden Yellow 

Theology Scarlet 

At Savannah State College, the lining of the hood has an orange chevron on a blue 
background to represent school colors. A faculty member wears the color of his alma mater.
